Olympia lucked out with the weather for Fall Arts Walk! Spent most of the evening at Cast Off Art Studio with Jenny Macc‘s wonderful wearables, the amazing recycled paper collages of Nora Walsh, and of course, sculpture from repurposed materials by yours truly, Diane Kurzyna, aka Ruby Re-Usable. We also had a small display of our street art collection (most of it found at the Olympia Free Wall):
Did sneak out briefly to get some Thai take-out at Angels, and also to purchase stenciled and spray painted art work by the super-talented Arthur Crews and Abe Poultridge at Capitol Florist. Alas, I didn’t have my camera that night, but I did get to take some pics on Saturday, when I went to visit Christine Philippsen, the proprietor of your source for eco-innovative living: Whirligig.
And what is with this collection of scrap metal? It appeared on Friday afternoon and was still sitting there as of Sunday evening. Is it a Burning Man vehicle? Someone’s idea of modern art? An eco-protest? I think it is a gutsy and ambitious street art installation; Second-hand Sid commented on how much valuable scrap metal is just sitting there waiting to be reclaimed… More pics of it here.
